If you are looking at the EVIC MPG you need to be aware that it is calibrated for your stock tire size. Going to a larger diameter tire you will actually be going a bit further with each revolution (your speedo will be off a bit too) but your EVIC doesn't know this. If your stock tires were the 33's when your speedo reads 70 your are really doing 74. In a nutshell, you are going further than your odometer says you are. You do lose a little mileage due to the tires being heavier (weight penalty) but it isn't that much. Try doing a manual calculation correcting for the size difference. Your ECM can only be programmed for up to a 33" tire so no help from the dealer on this. You could add an aftermarket box (like a Hypertech) to correct but it really isn't worth it.
